"Great tablet. Works flawlessly after latest update."5.0 starson by gwhiz2K
Pros: -Great Screen
-Asus is quick with updates
-Basic Android with only a few Asus "enhancements"
-Good software productivity package
-Lots of ports for connectivity
-Ability to plug in external storage
-2 SD slots (with KB)
Cons: -Edges sometimes feel a little "flex-y"
-Early ICS updates were a bit buggy
-Camera is sub-par
-Using the tablet with the Keyboard dock like a netbook, means I now have a bad habit of poking the screen on my regular laptop when I use it. :P
Summary: First of all, have to say this tablet was flawless as it came, with Honeycomb. The UI was a bit sluggish if used in portrait mode (on Honeycomb).
The update to ICS came quite quickly. Some users were having problems with random reboots. Asus released several updates to try and solve the problem, and were even active on some of the user forums to try to solve what was apparently happening for only a few. The latest update has fixed the problem completely (no reboots for 2 weeks now), and the tablet is now very "snappy", with no sluggishness or problems.
ICS on this tablet feels great. The UI is no longer sluggish in portrait mode.
I listed the camera as a Con, but really, I'm not someone who cares about camera on a tablet. That's not what I use it for, and have rarely found the need, since my phone is always around. For Skype-ing, the front camera works great.
I notice games like Temple Jump are not quite as smooth as on my Galaxy Nexus, but I'm guessing that's to be expected since it's an older GPU (Tegra 2). WiFi performance seems ok, I've not had any issues, and GPS appears to work well too (not that I've used it much, my tablet mostly stays at home on WiFi).
I got it for Christmas, then went out and bought the keyboard dock a few weeks later. The keyboard dock really makes the Transformer rock. I get wonderful battery life out of it, usually only charging it once or twice a week. It's nice that you can separate the 2 and charge the keyboard while using the tablet elsewhere, then connecting the keyboard charges the tablet again. You can also charge both at the same time by charging the keyboard while connected.
I regularly plug my external HD into the USB port, and it can transfer files extremely quickly. Same for USB thumb drives, and even my SLR camera, using the regular USB cable it came with. You can even plug another Android device into either of the full-sized USB slots and transfer files with much greater speed than WiFi.
2 SD slots (one full size, the other Micro) can allow you to bump the 32GB up to 64 or even 96, (or higher if you want to spend $$). That kind of option is great.
Tablet comes with "office" software that while limited, can read/write standard (older) Office docs, a file explorer, and a few other nifty touches.
I've trusted Asus for years for their motherboards and other hardware, and this tablet was my first choice. It's a worthy purchase if you're looking for a tablet.
